      it happens and how you deal is what makes a good player

      just remember that poker is not about one day , one hand and the bad beats will even out in the end , last year had a bad run for about 3 months but things do change and turn around

      tell me about, i get these all the time. It's nothing special, really. Normally, if you're way in front, the equity of your hand is only 70-80% to win, so sometimes you do lose. I stopped caring about results, i don't even watch them anymore, i simply don't care. I only play for equity/sklansky bucks, the money will come at some point if you win a lot of equity and sklansky$.

      I went all in preflop with AA, got called by 7 2 us 7 on flop 2 on river...brought tears to my eyes that one.... during downturns like you'rs i play low limits and freerolls until things start to turn round. If you want to keep playing...otherwise give up for a little while...and return refreshed and ready to give battle.

      My worst loss with AA was against 24o, he hit a flush on river. Anyways, today is the first day after 4 days of really bad luck and losing about 50% of my bankroll, taht I actually have won a bit. Will continue playing, we'll see how I'll curse the donks in the morning when I'm down another $100 :D

      and here it comes...I have KK on sb, 3 people call bb, I raise $3,5 (7xbb), one call. Flop is Q47. I go all-in with the rest of my $4 and some cents. He calls with 56o. You probably know what happened on the river, but I'll say it nevertheless, just in case. There was a 3 and I lost...

      amazing read there with 56o..Mos-def a world class play :)

      But seriously...I think we all, people who play poker more than they should, sometimes get little bit unlucky and think that this can't be happening, but it does...and it'll continue to do it in future :D

      doesn't really matter what read the villain has. he is obviously behind, and has the exact same chance to draw out. (@33%)

      of course, it's a pretty shite call preflop!
